Emily Doran makes wheel thrown contemporary tableware from her north London studio. After initially working on the other side of the creative process in arts marketing, Emily retrained as a potter, fulfilling a lifelong dream. Her coastal tableware range is sold around the country in independent galleries and shops.
Each piece is made individually by hand using traditional techniques on the wheel, leaving visible the natural throwing rings and ridges to create tactile pots full of movement. The pots are glazed in a range of coastal tones, from greeny blues to soft oatmeal, and combined with a rustic speckled stoneware clay to create a flecked bird egg effect.
She looks outside of the city for inspiration, particularly to the British countryside and coastline to aims to create simple yet beautiful pots with minimal decoration very much influenced by Japanese pottery traditions and aesthetics.
Emily’s ceramics are dishwasher safe. Each piece is made by hand, so slight variations in colour and size can occur.
